      • GL DIE

        The radius profile of the GL die allows up to 1.5mm of grind life with the standard die plate, or 2.5mm with the GL die plate, while still having radius left to allow the sheet to flow over the top of the die. Available with Optima® coating for maximum wear resistance.

        GL DIE PLATE AND KEY The GL die plate and key allow for the GL die to be shimmed up to 2.5mm while still maintaining key engagement. The key is coated in Wilson Tool’s Nitrex® coating for easy identification. Nitrex® is commonly used in piercing, blanking and forming applications for improved durability.

        The GL size 2 die plate key contains a spring-loaded ball plunger to better secure the die. The size 2 key is available separately and is also compatible with standard die plates.
